Russia EU food ban: Polish apple crop feels the crunch

22 August 2014 Last updated at 10:11 BST

Poland is the world's largest producer of apples and it was the biggest supplier to Russia before the ban on EU food was imposed on 7 August.

Polish family apple farms accounted for 90% of those sales and now they face the choice of trying to apply for EU emergency aid or finding another market for their crops outside of the EU.
